Question about HP PhotoSmart M627 Digital Camera
When I connect the camera to my computer, my computer says that there is no pictures on it even though I have taken photo and can see them on the camera. I have install the software and done everything I can think of to try and fix the problem.
Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

We had the same issue - audio but no video on playback on a Win XP pc on both Windows Media Player and Media Player Classic. At some stage it suddenly stopped working - I suspect a Windows update?
I've found video plays back correctly with the VLC player: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
I've raised a support call with HP regarding this issue.

Your problems most likely came from it being dropped. The fix is time consuming but well worth it since this camera is a nice one to use. You are going to need a set of small screw drivers philips and straight. Also a soldering iron. Take the back off. Easy enough. Then remove the obvious screws you can see. Heat the iron up and remove the solder joints at the battery compartment. there are two and if you have taken all the screws out it will fall into your hand. Dont forget to remove the screws on the top board as well. If you turn the barrell on the lens you might hear a snap and that is a sign the lens has fallen back on to the track. If not take the screws out of the gear box and set the track on the barrell of the lens. This is not all that hard I have done several. Different cameras use different ways of getting to the motor drive. Most you dont have to unsolder, but with this one you do. I love this camera and it is worth the effort to fix. Write if you have problems

This is probably THE single most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
